How to Change Your Win 7 Wireless Adapter MAC address

There are programs to accomplish this, but here is the roll-your-own method of changing the Media Access Control (MAC) address of your wireless adapter.

CHANGE YOUR WIRELESS MAC ADDRESS


The possible MAC addresses in Windows 7 for wireless adapters:
  • X2-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX
  • X6-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX
  • XA-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX
  • XE-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX

WIN | cmd.exe | enter |
Ipconfig /all > ipinfo.txt

IpInfo.TXT has your original IP address.


WIN | DevMgmt.MSC | ENTER | dbl-clk on Network Adapters |
rt-clk on your ...Wireless Network Adapter | Properties |
Advanced tab | select Network Address (in Property area) |
Value radio button | enter desired MAC address | OK

Examples of MAC addresses:
023344556677
16A098765432
3Affeeddbbcc
4E44667799aa

WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.

Nice one. But in Windows I'm changing it using software. In Linux I'm using Terminal.
